Little by little I have been working on one of the bedrooms around my house and wanted a mantle in the guest room, but really don't have the space... or the mantle, so for my copy cat challenge I chose as inspiration this Pottery Barn decorative shelf that costs a wopping $399.00.. Which was only about $349.00 more than I was willing to spend!!
Pottery Barn Shelf $399.00
My version. Total cost 32.00
I wanted a wee bitty valentine slant so used some rose buds instead of votives
and a cupid votive holder.
Sorry these pics have shadows, the light is so poor in this room,
and it just snowed so the skies are dark grey.
It doesn't help that I am just learning this camera!
But I got this look with all stuff that I already had around the house,
except for the chippy corbels, that I found at
Home Goods for 15.99 each, fell in love with.. and drug home before I even knew what I would do with them!!
Isn't it fun and fulfilling to shop around your house and put things together?
That's why I love Debbies challenges, inspiration to create that mantle I wanted!
The simple floating shelf used to be in my office.
The vintage bottles I've had forever, hubby dug them up from the streets in Philly
The picture is one of my photos on canvas. ( coming soon in my etsy shop)
The carved wood decoration above used to be over my dining room door. I added that for interest, although it wasn't in the Pottery Barn version.
Have a great week, check out the fun party!
